The Seller Portal team is introducing and testing this new feature by using a staged rollout to selected countries. Monitor your email for a notification from the team when this feature is released to your location.
A price template allows you to set a fixed local price in each country where your app is sold and can be applied to one or more in-app items of an app. This allows you to set the same local price for different in-app items without having to manually update the local prices for each in-app item. This also means the prices of in-app items are not tied to the daily exchange rate of when the in-app item is registered.
When registering an in-app item, you set a standard price for it in U.S. dollars. This standard price and the daily exchange rate are used to generate local prices that can be automatically applied to each country where your app is sold (the daily exchange rate used is KEB Hana Bank's exchange rate from the previous business day).
If you register in-app items with the same standard price on different days, the calculated price for one or more countries may be different from the price of a previously registered in-app item because the daily exchange rate has changed. If you want the prices of these in-app items to be the same in the same country, you must manually update that country's price for each of the in-app items. Or, if you register in-app items with the same standard price on the same day but adjust a country's local price, you must manually update that country's price for each of the in-app items.
Two features in this beta test allow you to quickly and easily update local prices so that prices are consistent for all your in-app items in a single app. One feature is to update the exchange rate, which allows you to reset the local prices based on the current exchange rate. Use this feature if you want to use only the calculated local prices in each country. The other feature, the price template (described on this page), allows you to set local prices in a template and then apply the template to one or more of your in-app items.
You may also set prices for specific countries using batch item registration (bulk upload). Prices set in the price template take precedence over prices set in the Price Exception and Standard Price fields of the CSV file for a bulk upload.
This page describes how to manage a price template:
When you create a price template, you set a standard price in U.S. dollars. You then apply a price to each country based on this standard price and the current daily exchange rate. You can choose to:
Use the applied price for each country
Set the local price for one or more countries
After you have created the price template with your desired local prices, you can use it to set the same standard and local prices for any of your in-app items. For example, if you apply a standard price of US$1 to the in-app item, you can adjust the local price in Germany and Spain to be €1 in a price template. Then, you can apply this price template to as many in-app items of the app as you wish.
A price template is only available for the app in which it has been created. That is, if you create price template A in app A, you can only apply price template A to in-app items in app A. If you edit app B, price template A is not available to use in app B.
To create a price template:
There are two ways to start creating a price template:
Click Add New Template.
From the Add Price Template window, enter the following:
You can modify the standard price, template name, in-app items to which the template is applied, and the local country prices.
From the In App Purchase tab of a selected app, click Price Template.
Update the price template.
If you update the standard price or local country price, these updated prices are applied to all in-app items connected to this price template.Clicking Update Exchange Rate updates all local prices for all countries based on the daily exchange rate, including prices that were updated manually. See Update Exchange Rate for more information.
You can delete a price template at any time, even if it is connected to an in-app item.
If you delete a price template connected to one or more in-app items, the titles of the connected in-app items are displayed in the pop-up confirmation window.
When you delete a price template connected to one or more in-app items, the prices for the connected in-app items are initially based on the values from the deleted template. If you want to change the prices, you must manually adjust them by updating the in-app item.
Click the garbage can icon to the right of the price template you want to delete.
When you delete a price template, it is permanently removed from Seller Portal.
Connecting a price template and an in-app item applies the prices in the price template to the in-app item. Any prices previously set within the in-app item are overwritten.
There are two ways to connect a price template and an in-app item.
To connect a price template to an in-app item:
Open the in-app item.
Locate the Price section, click the Price Template dropdown menu, and select a price template.
If a price template does not exist or you want to create one, select Add New Template. See Create a price template for details on how to add a new price template.
To connect an in-app item to a price template:
Click the Template Name.
Click on Search for items in the Search item section, and select the in-app item.
Click Close to return to the list of in-app items.
Disconnecting a price template and an in-app item allows you to manually update prices for the in-app item. When you disconnect a price template, the initial prices used by the in-app item are based on the prices set in the price template.
There are two ways to disconnect a price template and an in-app item.
To disconnect a price template from an in-app item:
Locate the Price section and click Disconnect Template.
To disconnect an in-app item from a price template:
In the Search item section, locate the in-app item in the Selected Items area and click the X next to it.
